Where To Connect
Just as worshiping together weekly as a congregation is essential to Christian living, gathering together regularly in Sunday School classes and in small groups is also vital. St. Stephen's offers several teaching and fellowship opportunities where you can grow in your faith, establish new friendships, and have a positive impact in our community. Our hope is for everyone to become active in ministry with us!
Please contact Martha Benn, Interim Directory of Lay Ministries, to discover more about how St. Stephen's can help you grow in your relationship with Christ and others.
